Who we are

Building Cardiff Arena: bringing the right team to deliver

Cardiff Council, Live Nation Entertainment and Oak View Group (OVG) – with Robertson Group as developers – are proposing to bring a world-class events arena to Cardiff. 

Leaders in global live entertainment, venue management and ticketing, and with a history of promoting shows in Cardiff going back to the 1980s, both Live Nation and OVG know the city well. Joining forces with Robertson who delivered the award-winning TECA in Aberdeen – one of Europe’s most sustainable event complexes – this is a team with the capabilities to successfully develop, build and operate a top-tier, multi-purpose events space for Atlantic Wharf Butetown, Cardiff. And one that is fully committed to making a positive and demonstrable impact in local communities. 

Cardiff Council

Cardiff Council have played a pivotal role in the city’s regeneration in recent decades. As the UK’s fastest growing city, the Council has overseen one of the most ambitious transformations of any major UK city, working closely with the private sector to bring major developments that have delivered tens of thousands of new jobs.

The Council is committed to creating more and better jobs for its residents, ensuring that where development does take place it is done in the interests of the people that live there and the communities they serve. www.cardiff.gov.uk
